Headline says it all .Electric Tuna playing July 20th State Theater N.J. w/ Leon Russell. This @ first blush seems like an ood pairing but they do have a long history going back to the early 70s.At SUNY New Paltz May 1970 had a spring festival weekend .I think the line-up was on Sat. Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee,The Young Bloods and Hot Tuna. SUN
the Airplane opened for Joe Cocker and The Mad Dogs were Leon was bandleader for what looked like 30 people on stage playing both piano and guitar. It already said they will be playing together in July. Oh the Young Bloods took a crowd shot for their back album cover and I'm there plain as day w/ an acid grin a 1/2 mile wide.

That's about a week before they play FloydFest. We're getting three sets - Electric Tuna, Acoustic Tuna and what will likely be a high point, Workshop Tuna on the Back Porch. The Back Porch stage has some of the best moments of the festival, right up close and interactive. A few years back, I listened to Grisman tell stories about his and Jerry's exploits from back in Old And In The Way Days - from 3 feet away.

If I have any camera storage left I'm going to record the workshop set and I'll post the link.

Good for you, Nice mix of differening styles to be sure.I hear the workshops like you have said are very interesting and like everyone who knows Jorma isn't one not to mentor or teach his style of play. The amazing thing to me it seems that @70 both he and Jack still play all year long in all different configerations w/ all different people sitting in and even when he gets back to his ranch they still do workshops and hold minor shows. If there was anyone who liked to play, I'd put Jorma as on top of the list ,they just love play and their ticket prices are the most reasonable around.

I've posted these before and you've probably already seen these. The first two are from FF a few years back right after their Main Stage Acoustic set, the third is during from the side stage VIP seating area. The really cool thing is we had eaten lunch with Jorma, Barry and Jack in the Artist/VIP Tent just a few hours earlier.

That back cover crowd photo is from SUNY and you're in it??!! Very Cool! I love that photo!! An absolutely fantastic crowd shot. There are so many very happy faces in there. Are you in the first 5 rows or so?

I was all of 10 in spring of '69, to this day l don't know much about the Youngbloods, but I bought the LP for that photo alone for 50ยข at a Seattle thrift store in the early 90's. Funny to hear the photo is from SUNY as all the live material on the album is West Coast. I scanned the cover this morning but not sure how to add it to the post, and the file size is probably too big anyhow. The disc is a little rough, been a couple of years since I last played it.

Have fun at the show.

If you have to know and have the album I can direct you to me.Atop from the middle of the white media box w/ all the info go up straight till you see a tall blonde haired guy. He was my next door neighbor in the BX. next slde right 2 people and that's me w/ the open shirt w/ nipple exposed and as I said a very happy grin.It's about 8-9 rows up. Even though I did not go to school there it was my 2nd home w/ many friends attending and then before networking was even a word that always happened ,so if I wasn't at the Fillmore East generally if I could get away I was at New Paltz.I must be 17 here.

Got ya. A very happy grin in a sea of happy grins and more. And then there's the girl right down in front sticking her tongue out - she seems pretty darn happy too. As I said, love that photo.

Very cool. Thanks.
